You will learn an effective system of percussion technique used and respected by the Kamara family, from Guinea Conakary, teaching you to Apply correct technique, posture and tempo with meditation, learning how to 'free your mind' and utilize your true natural 'in the moment' energy.

You will also learn African Rhythms and experience Rhythm and Melodie, learning introduction and rhythm variation patterns arrangements with Graeme. After a good foundation in Tempo, Technique and Rhythm has been established, Graeme will guide you into playing Melodies and solo phrases.

Graeme has played Djembe for 18 years - travelled to The Gambia, West Africa and built a Drumming Holiday Centre, Alla Leake Kunda in the Gambia West Africa. Since 1999 has trained with Thomas Camara and Gibi Camara, SuSu Djembe Masters see www.rhythmworks.co.uk

Daily Yoga & Drumming

in Beautiful and Amazing locations

There will be Daily yoga practice   

Our holiday-retreats, combine two very effective cultural practices - Drumming and Yoga. Both activities induce a more calm and relaxed natural 'state' and are best practised with a meditative approach.

There will be early morning Yoga to 'set' and provide balance for the day, calming the mind and preparing the body, for a day of continued relaxation!

In the late afternoon or early evening there will be the Djembe Rhythmworkshops which will encourage the participants to enjoy learning the therapeutic system of meditative percussion techniques. The group will benefit using the meditative system of 'programming' to create natural responsive application, in tempo of the 3 primary tones; The TONE SLAP & BASS. The inspiration of this practice of TECHNIQUE is from the Djoliba (The Drumming & Dancing Ballet of Guinea Conakary). 

The 2nd half of the daily Djembe Workshop will guide the group through the practice of Rhythm arrangements, Accompaniment parts, Breaks and Melodies. By naturally utilising the increased clarity from DAILY TECHNIQUE practice participants will appreciate and enjoy playing the Djembe with increased confidence and mastery.
